ActiveControl includes the ability to control which functions users are able to access and which objects are visible to the user when they log into the GUI.
Basic authorisation to the ActiveControl application for all users requires one of the following ActiveControl roles to be assigned:
|This role contains all of the basic authorisations that are required to log into ActiveControl application and needs to be assigned to every ActiveControl user.
|This role contains all of the basic authorisations that are required to use the application, plus some ActiveControl and SAP standard authorisations required for actions aimed more at Basis and Configuration users of ActiveControl.
Standard Single/Composite Roles
In addition the aforementioned basic authorisations, ActiveControl includes a set of standard out-of-the-box single and composite roles that can be assigned to users in the domain controller. A separate Roles Matrix describing each of these standard roles in detail is available on request, but in summary

Approvals and Test Results Entry Authorisations
To control approvals and test results entry / approval for non-administrators the following activities can be allocated to users.
|Allows approvals to be processed in all locations in ActiveControl. Overrides the approvers configured in the target system inbox and outbox approvers
|Allows test results entry and “Save and Approve” to be processed in all locations in ActiveControl. Overrides the testers allocated to the tasks
|Must be allocated to users needing to perform a “Save and Approve” during test results entry
Legacy Authorisation concept
In earlier versions of ActiveControl, the user authorisations was far less granular. For clients that wish to continue using the legacy authorisations concept, which broadly grouped users into Administrators and non-administrators, ActiveControl still comes with the following two compatibility roles:
|This role should be assigned to all users that currently have Administrator access
|This role should be assigned to all other users
Once assigned to users, these roles will give people the same Activity Authorisations as they had in earlier versions of ActiveControl.
